Bears rookie 3rd round pick DL Jonathan Bullard returned to practice after being excused the last few days to deal with a family matter at home. Bullard, who is having a strong preseason, expects to be active for Saturday's 3rd preseason game vs. Kansas City.

Bears starting tailback Jeremy Langford was cleared for full participation in Thursday's practice. Langford said he suffered a minor foot injury vs. New England last week when he got caught up on a play near the sideline. After the game, Langford experienced soreness and swelling, which kept him out for a couple days. But Langford says he's ready to play in Chicago's third preseason game on Saturday against Kansas City.

The Broncos presumably are not surprised by Mark Sanchez this summer. Only JaMarcus Russell and Geno Smith have higher INT rates out 45 qualifying QBs since 2009. Only Rex Grossman, John Skelton and Kerry Collins have worse turnover-to-snaps ratios than Sanchez since Sanchez entered the league (min. 1000 snaps).

Bears third round pick DL Jonathan Bullard, who is pushing to crack the starting lineup, missed his second straight practice for "personal reasons," according to coach John Fox. However, Fox made it sounds as if Bullard is expected to play Saturday vs. Kansas City. Also missing Tuesday's practice: OG Kyle Long, RB Jeremy Langford and ILB Danny Trevathan.
